bareMinerals More Than Meets the Eye 8-piece Collection
All in all, a decent kit
I don't know why I keep getting suckered into Bare Minerals foundation, I am never really happy with it (mostly because I don't have patience for the messy powder, I usually put makeup on on the go). But I do like the primer and eyeshadow when I am putting a little more effort into my makeup. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the all over face color. I would definitely re-order. And the lipstick is a really nice shade, and feels great.
Fantastic BM Collection
Been a BM fan for years. So excited to order this collection so I can stock up on favorites and try new products. You cannot go wrong with this kit!
I love this set
I'm new to bare minerals so although I was curious I couldn't find a collection that was large enough for me to try a variety without a long term commitment. I definitely will buy again!
Great Mineral Veil
Love this collection. Especially like the 5-1 BB Advanced Performance Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 20. I have been using bare minerals for 10 years and this is the best Mineral Veil!!!!!!!!!!! When will it be available by itself?????????
LOVE IT All!
I have seen these products for years, finally tried it, and am thinking I shouldn't have waited so long. I am so so glad I didn't pass on it this time. Can't wait to get more!!!
I just received this set today. I absolutely love it. I have used bare Minerals in the past and loved them. This is a great starter kit if you are new to bare Minerals. I have acne prone skin and many products cause break outs on my skin very easily. I purchased the fairly light kit.
Prime Time Daily Defense Neutralizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
I have tried so many primers its not even funny. This primer is awesome. The primer is yellow tinted to help cover any redness. This primer goes on very silky and does not feel greasy at all. It has no odor either. This is a huge deal for me because I am highly sensitive to scented makeups and lotions.
Original Foundation Broad spectrum SPF 15:
Great coverage over the primer and goes on smooth just as I remembered. It really hides my blemishes and red marks without irritating them and making them multiplying them. I have used other makeup products to cover blemishes and it creates a terrible cycle of hide the blemish, irritate the blemish, and create more blemishes. Thank god bare Minerals does not do this.
Bare Minerals Ready (All over face color) Elation:
This color gives the perfect flush for the cheeks. You can also wear it as an eye color or highlighter. I love multitasking makeup products it makes my routine so much faster. This gives a very natural glow.
5-In-1 BB Advanced performance mineral Veil Finishing Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 20:
I love how Bare Minerals improved the mineral veil since I used it about 5 years ago. This somehow manages to provide moisture to the skin and makes you have a more finished look. I also like the new tops to the jars with the little holes similar to a salt shaker that you can turn to sprinkle and then turn again to close completely. This is awesome because it helps reduce waste of the product.
5-in-1 BB Advanced performance cream eye shadow broad spectrum SPF 15 (blushing apricot):
This is a beautiful light creamy nude-like color. I have dark circles around my eyes and my eye lids are dark as well. This really brightened my eyes and finally made me look NOT tired. I can't wait to wear this look to work. I know I will not be hearing "you look really tired" anymore. You could also use this color as a primer for eye shadow as well. It has a little sparkle to it and a little goes a long way. Amazing product I will definitely be trying other colors of this product.
Hydrating lip stain (Elation):
WOW...this is a real winner for me. I am extra picky when it comes to choosing lip colors. Because many lip sticks smell weird, taste weird, dry my lips out, or are sticky or waxy. This lip stain is perfect for me. It is a natural flushed pinkish color. It has almost no odor at all and is not waxy or sticky.
Angled Foundation Brush/ Flawless complexion brush:
I love that this kit comes with brushes. They are the key to getting this practically flawless look. These brushes are so soft and very high quality. I have purchased other makeup kits where the brushes included are cheaply made. I am so happy this is not the case.
Overall an amazing buy. If you are looking for a kit that gives you a flawless natural look this is the kit for you. I enjoy a natural look. I will be purchasing more bare minerals products.
the mineral veil new color should be xterminated.. it's too dark for a fair skin, nothing worth keeping in this set, going back
I purchased the medium color set. I am fair skinned but, like to tan in the summer. I only used the Prime Time once since it is SPF 30 and I normally use SPF 15. It applied well and left my skin feeling smooth. The original foundation was okay. I do not particularly like powder/brush foundation but, it was usable. Not great coverage. The Elation face glow is one of my favorite items in the set. I use it all over and can use as a natural looking blush. the Elation lip stain is pretty much a bust for me. Went on like a light gloss on my lips. Had to use another stain product under it to get effective color. The 5 in 1 cream eyeshadow is a major disappointment. I don't use glittery eyeshadows and this was glittery - not shimmery. I prefer matte. Actual flakes of glitter dusted down my face from this product. I use natural brushes and have my own Kabuki and blush brush so I did not try to the brushes. I don't normally use powder per se but, I did try the product that came in the set. Okay. Probably won't use much.
It is true the brushes are terrible. However I love each product. The color correcting primer is thinner than the original but it does a better job priming. The face color for fairly light was exact as the past pot. I freaking ADORE the advanced mineral veil and wish that senhora offered it. The bb eye cream works more as a primer, and it really helps the my eyehadow stick to my lids.I love the all over color. Light rosy nice. My brother and coworker both said I was glowing radiantly. I am 8 months pregnant and this is the first time I heard that.
Not very good
The brushes are always AWFUL in the bare minerals kits on QVC. I don't think I'm going to buy the kits with brushes anymore. The foundation color is WRONG. I've always purchased 'Fairly Light' from Ulta or Sephora and I got something more along the lines of 'Light'. The blush and primers are great.
Not as pleased as I thought I would be
The mineral veil came in a color instead of the original, and it makes me look too dark. The brushes are kind of flimsy. The lipstick looks like the color of child's crayon or cheap peach lipstick. The eyeshadow is so light you can barely tell I have it on. I am using it as a primer.The primer, blush, and original makeup are great. Not sure this kit is worth the money. I am only ending up using three of the items. I would not recommend this one. I love their makeup, but it seems like cheap products for high price.
Excellent package but...
The products are an excellent deal for the price! Been using Bare Minerals since 2008. In 2010 I tried a less expensive mineral cosmetic line and was not pleased at all and returned to Bare Minerals. I love the texture, choice of colors, the way the products look on my complexion! This entire package is such a great deal! I'm on auto-delivery so I can get the same pricing and package. My only complaint is the brushes! The brushes shed badly! I have received brushes from bareminerals.com several times throughout my years of use and never have received such inferior quality as the ones in this package! The brushes should be upgraded! I am still very pleased with Bare Minerals and the brushes are a small issue for me.
